Kiambu residents and Kenyans at large. The estate will house close to 2,000 units and become a home to countless more. Indeed, the typical Kenya no longer wants to rent or lease for a time.But, as this crisis continues to show us, owning a home is for the long run the most deliberate investment.” He asserted.
